DSL50 or Vintage Modern
Hi, I'm shooting for the common tones that people often point at - ZZ (tres hombres era), Gary Moore, classic rock (Free, AC/DC....). I've been unable to find a store anywhere within reasonable travel distance where I can try the dsl and the VM's so I'm really relying on others experiences.
I'm very strongly drawn to the Vintage Modern which I'm sure can deliver all the tones I'm looking for but I see that Gary Moore actually uses a DSL so I guess I'm really thinking that the DSL would be better for the high gain blues rock stuff.
Here in the UK the DSL's can be picked up on the 'bay for a reasonable cost whereas the VM I'd have to buy new at twice the price so that's a big point in the favour of the DSL.
Question is which one is better for me overall? I'd be grateful of the views of those who may have experience of both the DSL and the VM's.

Re: DSL50 or Vintage Modern
Vintage Modern for the ZZ top, Free, ACDC sound
the newer Gary Moore sound would be the DSL50
his older sound the VM
With a OCD pedal you can get a VM to sound like a DSL50 but
you cant get a DSL to sound like a VM
Take the time and look up Vintage Modern and DSL50 YouTube videos
that people have put up, probably the best way to figure it out
although some of the people dont really set them up right
there are some good YouTube videos that show thier sound
Heres one i did on the VM shows how much it sounds like a cranked out 60's Plexi
Chris George from Marshall
This song was recorded by a freind at the Vintage Modern forum and is also a member here (Balz at the VM Forum)
you can hear how great of a vintage rock sound it gets......
.(PS I just love this version of Thin Lizzy song Dont Believe A Word) So it does Gary Moores old sound great
It also captures Gibbons old sound to
